salad_barbarian: It's Jet from Cowboy Bebop (Default)

Well I ended up buying more books both comic and non. From the thrift store I got "A birds eye view of Jewish history", "Sources of Chinese traditions", and "The long dark teatime of the soul". (I also found another wooden monk.) I checked out a different comic store than usual and instead of 50 cent bins they had $1 bins. There were so many boxes that I couldn't go through them all but I noticed that the comics were a lot more recent then the cheaper ones at the other store. Anyway I picked up Amazing Spiderman 537 (it's the one where Captain America gives a great speech), Atomic Robo: Dogs of War (parts 4 and 5). Then I paid full price for Fin Fang 4 Return and Galacta: Daughter of Galactus.

Let's see has there been anything else I've done? I've bought several strips of Taste of Chicago tickets in preparation for that starting this friday. I don't know if I'll be able to try all of the different foods I want but I make an effort. I just hope it rains on the days I go so it's not crowded.

Also I remember promising scans showing all of you the comic book called Protectors that had a hole in it. Well here's the cover: (Warning this is graphic)

That hole goes through the entire book, letter page and all. For those of you who don't know the 90s was a real bad time for comics. Almost every company was putting out special gimmick covers for speculators who were hoping to resell them at a latter time for a profit. It didn't work as evidenced by the fact that I bought the above comic for 50 when it was originally marked $2.95. I'm not an expert so I'll refrain form getting into a long rant against that era when everything had to be extreme with a capital X.

To get over that slight downer here is Brent Spiner in the role that made him famous:


Have a nice day!

PS. Is there anything that I can type as my location that google maps can't find?
